San Diego Comic-Con is just a month and a half away, and as usual, /Film will be there to get all the big news that comes out of the convention. Along with all the big announcements that will be coming about the movies and TV shows on the way over the next couple of years, the next best thing about the convention is all the limited edition exclusives that you have wait in line to get your hands on.

the godfather board game

(Welcome to Cardboard Cinema, a feature that explores the intersection between movies and tabletop gaming. This column is sponsored by Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy in Austin, Texas.)

Back in 2016, we first learned that CMON (formerly Cool Mini Or Not) was making a board game based on Francis Ford Coppola’s masterpiece, The Godfather. Now, after over a year of designing and playtesting and tweaking and playtesting and playtesting (as is the board game way), the Godfather board game is about to hit shelves. And as a new trailer reveals, it looks cool. Really cool, even. Maybe even “day one purchase” levels of cool.

But does it actually look like The Godfather? That’s the question, isn’t it?

Sphero Lightning McQueen Toy

If you haven’t heard the name Sphero before, they’re the company that came out with the frequently in-demand, app-controlled, interactive toy version of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens droid BB-8. The high-priced item was a popular Christmas gift that flew off the shelves, and it even received a cool update not too long ago that allows users to control the droid like they’re using the Force.

Now Sphero has created a toy tied to one of Disney’s other lucrative sequels, Pixar Animation’s Cars 3. The electronic toy company has created one of the most lifelike toys of race car Lightning McQueen that have ever been made, complete with animated eyes, an animatronic mouth, emotive suspension and the voice of Owen Wilson, just like the character in the Cars franchise.

Mortal Engines

Author Phillip Reeve’s four-part Predator Cities book series isn’t messing around when it comes to its title: in the future depicted in the novels, cities have become actual predators. Every city on Earth is now on wheels, constantly cruising around looking for smaller cities to consume and absorb.

The first book in that series, Mortal Engines, is getting a film adaptation from producer Peter Jackson and some of his The Lord of the Rings collaborators, and now Jackson has shared the first piece of Mortal Engines concept art with fans.

Spider-Man Homecoming Drone

In one of the recent trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming, we get a much closer look at one of the new gadgets that comes with the suit that Tony Stark created for the webslinger. The spider symbol on Spider-Man’s chest detaches from the suit and turns into a flying drone. While you might consider this to be nothing more than movie magic, you can actually own the drone yourself.

Cinelinx App

You might remember a few years ago we featured a Kickstarter for a card game made just for cinephiles. The game was called Cinelinx, and it had players match actors to the movies they’ve been in, other actors they’ve worked with, and directors of their movies. It was like a card game version of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon but with any actor, actress, movie or filmmaker.

If you never picked up the card game, there’s a much easier way to play, and you don’t even need your friends in the same room. Cinelinx is now available as a mobile app though the iTunes App Store and Google Play. Get details on the Cinelinx app below. Read More »

barry pepper knives

Here’s something that slipped under the radar – actor Barry Pepper posted a YouTube video last December in which he showed off his previously unknown blacksmithing ability. What’s more, he used this hobby to craft a knife he personally designed for his character in the upcoming Maze Runner: The Death Cure.

We always knew Pepper was an intense performer ever since his breakout performance in Saving Private Ryan, and he has always managed to play characters that have plenty of use for a knife. This has apparently turned into a bit of a passion project for him, in which he tries to personalize the role by designing items for his characters, either with the aid of the movie’s prop master or by himself in his smithy.

And yes, Pepper does offer a tour of his personal forge in a video that you can watch below.

Inflatable Moe's Tavern

If you’ve ever lamented the fact that you can’t go to Moe’s Tavern unless you go to Universal Studios, now you can make your dreams come true, and you can do it from your own yard.

The company Inflatable Pub is known for creating, you guessed it, massive inflatable pubs. They’re basically big inflatable tents with interiors that look as close to a real pub as a giant inflatable structure. Their products look like a few various pub styles, from Irish to Texas, and they even have fake fireplaces inside them. But their latest inflatable pub comes straight from the fictional town of Springfield, from the animated series The Simpsons. It’s Moe’s Tavern.
